Through our ongoing investment in research and the development of new
technology, we are continually working to make our products safer, more
reliable and more efficient.

The Next Generation i-kon™ II system is based on over 20 years of laboratory testing and 12 years of in-field use. Developed specifically for use in high value and complex blasts at large surface and underground operations, i-kon™ II continues to set the industry benchmark in Electronic Blasting Systems.

The i-kon™ II system retains many of the key features and capabilities of i-kon™ to enable your operation to achieve optimal blast results.

  • The Basis of Safety has not changed. Dual voltage technology allows all operations on the blast pattern to be done at an inherently safe low voltage.
  • Blast design using the industry-leading and recently enhanced SHOTPlus™ 5 design package remains a cornerstone of i-kon™ II.
  • Multiple Loggers are used to break the blast into several small, independent circuits, greatly increasing the system's resistance to electrical leakage and to extraneous electrical energy on the wiring. This improves efficiency by enabling a blast pattern to be logged by multiple operators, simultaneously.
  • Multiple modes of logging including SHOTPlus™ 5 mode, autoLog and pre-logging remain, with easier connections.
  • CEBS (Centralized Electronic Blasting System) for Underground applications and SURBS (Surface Remote Blasting System) for Open Cut applications facilitates easy remote blasting from a convenient and safe control point.
  • Encrypted remote communications ensure that the detonators can only be controlled from the designated Blaster, providing greater security and safety.
  • The superior copper zinc shell of i-kon™ has been retained with i-kon™ II, reducing failure due to dynamic shock in the hole.
  • A choice of legwire means that users can select the legwire suitable for their mining conditions: standard wire for many underground and coal mines and i-kon™ RX for most metal mines.
  • Full programmability of the detonator facilitates inventory reduction and simplifies regulatory conformance.
